Sewer Desilting and Jet Vacuumation


Our Desilting and Jet Vacuumation Services for Drains and Sewers

At Lanes, we have the knowledge, experience and state-of-the-art technology to make short work of clearing and cleansing sewers, culverts, pipes and drains of all shapes and sizes.

Our standard desilting service uses high-pressure water jets to break up silt-based blockages in your pipes, allowing the material to be removed through jet vacuumation and responsibly disposed of by our team. We are also able to use sophisticated cutting tools and ultra-high pressure water jetting units to remove more stubborn blockages made up of construction materials such as grout, sealants, fencing posts, rubble and concrete, allowing them to be dislodged without the need for costly excavation and unnecessary disruption.

We are happy to respond to one-off call-outs, or work out a competitively priced pre-planned maintenance (PPM) contract for our commercial customers, through which you can arrange for Lanes to desilt your sewers at regular intervals to help you keep on top of your maintenance requirements.

What Is Silt?

Silt is a heavy material that sinks and collects at the bottom of drain or sewer pipes. If it is not extracted regularly, it will solidify into a rock-like substance, partially blocking the pipe and reducing the flow capacity of the system. With extreme rainfall becoming more commonplace, regular desilting for drains and sewers is essential to avoid flooding on your premises.

The desilting process works by using high-pressure water jets to break up the silt and force it to the next downstream manhole, along with any other debris. From there, the matter is vacuumed out into the jet vacuumation tanker, before being disposed of responsibly.

When Is Desilting for Drains and Sewers Required?

Desilting and cleansing are important for keeping sewers, pipes, drains and gullies in good condition, so this is a process that needs to be carried out on a regular basis. This is particularly important for maintaining highways, because it reduces the risk of flooding in wet weather, which can make driving dangerous.
